The week 26th to 31st July 2015 around 700 members of Girlguding Oxfordshire enjoyed a fantastic week camping at Quest 2015. Quest is a county camp, which takes place every five years. The camp is run by the adult volunteer members, who willing give up their time to make events like this happen. This year’s camp, at St Hugh’s School Carswell, took place after two and half years of planning. The hard work and attention to detail of all those involved led to a successful camp.

Can your unit fit "Just one more"?
Girlguiding UK’s current focus is on encouraging Leaders to do their bit to help us grow guiding by finding 'room for just one more'.
